Tower Rock Nature Trail is a 2.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Apple River, Illinois that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
The trail takes you through some of areas most scenic timber overlooking the Apple River. Caution is advised as you will be hiking along cliff edges with several outcroppings. At trails end is Tower Rock.
Again very deceiving trail description. The trail head sign states the trail is only 3/4 of a mile long.
Fairly easy. Done this the last couple years with the Boy Scout Troop. Much better visually in the fall.
Nice little out and back trail which takes you to a large rock formation overlooking the Apple River. Trail has some moderate elevation change which offers a scenic trek through the timber with displays of plants and wildlife. Enjoy your hike.
